The Disappearing Spoon and The Elements


Comment

Sam Kean and Theo Gray are to be congratulated for making the study of the elements and the periodic table more accessible and more exciting. Another book that readers might be interested in for the historical background, with an emphasis on the periodic table rather than the elements is
Eric Scerri, The Periodic Table, Its Story & Its Significance, Oxford University press, 2007.
